ED Technician (Current Employee) – Emergency Department – August 2, 2015
Excellent people skills necessary to create confidence in level of care and reasons to return. The fast pace and high patient load are a challenge and the reward is the gratitude of the patients and the families who enter with needs and concerns and leave with confidence that they got the best care available.
Kaizen Specialist (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – July 8, 2015
A very nice place to work. Days go by fast because of the large amounts of material be reviewed each day. Everyday there is something new to learn that you could use the next day. Management are warm, understanding while motivating each employee to do there best..
Co workers at ORMC are some of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and work next to. Thoughtful, compassionate and smart,. very smart.
The hardest part of the job is trying to change a process - to improve outcomes. Most people do not like change, so the trick is to let them understand and actually see why a change would work better for 'them'.
The feeling of accomplishment, making a difference in someone's life was without a doubt the best part of my position at ORMC.
Not enough hands on medical employees (RN, RT, LAB TECHS)
Kitchen Worker (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – June 17, 2015
the employees in the kitchen are wonderful, mostly all get along and just make working there fun. management however isnt, they lie all they can to cover their butt. my 90 day probation was a 120 day, and it was only me. the director lies to have her way, she claims she knows everything that goes on in her kitchen but she cant name 10 employees she has. its unbelievable how many people in this place lie just to lie, like nothing has ever been life or death to lie over. just small stuff.
its union too, but like u arent bulletproof, i learned that the hard way. but at the same time u get a huge defense to anything the hospital tries to do to u.
Fun loving people work hard to care for our patients here
Nursing Director, Oncology Care Services (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – January 15, 2015
Workload is structured, employees are included in the plans to grow as an organization, co-workers are fun loving, hard working people. Hardest part of the job is having time to do everything you want. Most enjoyable part of the job is spending time with patients.
Clinical Queue Nurse Interventional Radiology (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – September 14, 2014
A very good place to work and be a patient. I feel for the most part everyone tries to be their best for all the patients. Management is sometimes distant they seem to have to handle too many departments per department head. Management and the union seem to have a decent relationship (for the RN division at least). I feel I was well paid and had great co-workers, we were very independent and did a great job. They are still my friends even though I am no longer there.
employee recognition "star program" decent pay and benefits
still having growing pains, but trying new tactics to serve the community better
registered nurse (Former Employee) – med surge – July 5, 2014
Worst experience I have ever had as an RN. This place pitches you one thing during the interview but it is completely different when you are on the floor. This place is disorganized and management was a nightmare to deal with. Management could never agree on anything. Some took great pleasure in inventing stories while others suffered from amnesia when they found it most convenient. There was absolutely noone to turn to when you had a problem, but for some reason, you were "contributing to a union" on a biweekly basis. Could just be the position I had, but this place has left a very sour taste in my mouth- to put it lightly.
patients, salary, benefits
schedule, some coworkers, management, and the overall cover your a $$ mentality took away from patient care
Safe and theraputic unit for individuals with mental health issues.
Psychiatric Technician (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – February 10, 2014
The first half hour is pre-conference. The evening shift and day shift communicate any problems or accomplishments the patients had during the previous shift. As a psychiatric technician I give out food trays, help with ADL's if needed and provide theraputic conversation. When the unit is violent it keeps me more aware of my surroundings and the safety of the patients. However it is greatly overshadowed when seeing a patient at their optimal level and leaving with the knowledge they need to succeed.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – March 2, 2013
A typical day at work for me is seeing patients, and doing my best to make their day better. I have learned how to appropriately deal with patients in a medical environment. My co-workers make our job very enjoyable, their is never a dull moment and we're always happy. The hardest part of the job is seeing people who are very sick but, still try to have happiness in their lives. What I enjoy most of all are seeing the children and elderly. I like to be able to make them laugh and smile, and hopefully make their stay at the hospital a little better.
being able to make people happy
i don't get enough hours to support myself in my position now
It has afforded me the acute care experience I desired
Daily Operations Manager of Pharmacy (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – June 18, 2013
The staff of pharmacists and technicians are the best I've worked with in my better than 20 years as a pharmacist and pharmacy supervisor. I would like to have the ability to lead and exhibit a positive example to the pharmacy staff. I do not believe in micromanagement but I will hold staff members accountable for their responsibilities. I am a supportive leader and I believe in setting the staff up for success
National Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – April 17, 2012
Orange Regional was a great place to work for with decent benefits. Everyday I learned new medicine and my co-workers did their best to work as a team. The hardest part of the job was time management for the whole team when the hospital was at full capacity. The most enjoyable was knowing that you were helping someone.

Required to take care of patients aged pediatric to geriatric. I've learned many health care related things from RN's, LPN's, Physicians, previous Nurse Mangers, and other medical staff. Enjoyed working and meeting new patients and building relationships. Hardest part of the job is working with others including management.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – April 12, 2014
I worked here during my 5th semester in Nursing School as a Nurses aid. I stayed there after receiving my Registered Nurse license. It was a good" first "facility to work in because It had an extensive orientation program and my fellow nurses where very helpful.
Dietetic Technician (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – July 21, 2012
Great place to work. Benefits are second to none. Educated clients on therapeutic diets was one of my favorite things to do. Management was down to earth and understanding. The hardest part of job was trying to get there in snow and ice storms.
